Our Home is dedicated to dementia box v2 AW (002)

Why you should only consider a care home dedicated to dementia:

  • Our entire team, including the professional nurses, benefit from extensive and specific dementia training
  • In our home, dementia is 'normal' and all individuals are respected
  • The companionship, activities and trips-out programme is designed specifically around those living with dementia
  • The interior and exterior environments have been carefully designed to remove the anxieties created by 'non-dementia friendly' environments 
  •  Read why dedicated dementia care is a better choice than a home that mixes peoples' needs


Fiona Pritchard is our new Music and Arts Partner, a role we introduced in February 2018 to help support our homes with their music and arts activities.

Whether it be through storytelling, singing, drama, writing poetry, dance, music and movement, colour therapy, collage work, puppetry, digital art apps, or games using mime, we are now able to ensure each resident has the opportunity to explore the many ways in which music and arts can have a positive impact upon their lives and enrich their wellbeing.

We pride ourselves on our beautiful and stimulating gardens. We recognise that many of our residents had such gardens themselves, and that gardening may have been a special pastime for them. We like to think that we can offer residents the opportunity to continue that pastime in whatever way they feel appropriate.

Useful Links & Downloads

Our Partnership with New Forest Hospital Radio

Our partnership with New Forest Hospital Radio allows our residents to have their own regular radio request show.

'Request Collectors' will visit the home on the third Friday of every month. Then, using flash drives, we will download the specially-produced show onto portable, rechargeable stereo sets designed for ease of use for older people, ready for the residents to listen to at their leisure in the lounges or in the comfort of their own bedrooms.

Colten Champions

Every year, we celebrate the hard work and dedication of the team members across the Colten group who consistently deliver above and beyond expectations. Colleagues, residents, and their relatives can all put forward their nominations, before the finalists are invited to a glittering gala ceremony at Bournemouth's Highcliff Marriott Hotel, hosted by a celebrity guest! This year we have had to take into consideration the changing situation we find ourselves in and as suspected we had to cancel our Awards night. However, we still have winners!
